Brainwagon Radio: Too Long Since the Last One

December 8, 2004 | Audioblogs and Podcasting, Brainwagon Radio | By: Mark VandeWettering

Damn, it’s been nearly a week since I put out my last one, and this was painful to put out. Hopefully it isn’t too painful to listen to.

Items from the show:

  • Shameless plug for my Cinnamon Bear Podcast.
  • I upgraded this weblog to use the latest version of the CG Powerpack.
  • I rambled about the phase vocoder some more. mostly incoherently, plugging papers that I’ve mentioned before.
  • I extol the virtues of cheese once again. Have you considered that the key ingredients in Welsh Rabbit are in fact all ancient foods? History in one dish.
  • The gents at SawStop have electric saws which detect when fingers get in them and break quickly to keep you from lopping off your finger.
  • An Internet Archive “gem”: Superman battles Japoteurs in an interesting (?) look back into wartime propaganda.
  • Need to convert MPEG2’s from to a DVD? I wrote up how to do that once before using command line programs. Works great because it doesn’t re-encode the video.
  • Want a Matlab compatible language? Try Octave. Need more Octave libraries? Try octave-forge.
  • Try wearing a Santa hat wherever you go.
  • Closing music: We Wish You a Merry Christmas by T. Stipe
